This is from EDE2. You use the linear probe and slide up the lateral radius up to the snuff box looking for a sort of saddle back mountain shape (on the normal side). You can see the fracture discontinuity on the injured side. [Editor’s note: POCUS is good to rule in a scaphoid fracture. But the research and experience just isn’t there yet to recommend that POCUS can be used to rule out a scaphoid fracture. But this is a neat case! You can also think of the normal scaphoid as looking like a peanut on its volar surface. Click here for a Best Bets article from 2010.]
